NQL Announces New Network Query Language Technology Pricing and Configurations

Offerings Redesigned to Better Address Needs of Software Developers



Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from NQL Inc.

    SANTA ANA, Calif., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- NQL Inc. (Nasdaq:   NQLI) today
 announced new configurations and pricing for its Network Query Language(TM)
 core technology, a scripting language designed to simplify Internet and
 network programming.  The new product configurations and pricing are designed
 to broaden acceptance of the technology in the software development community.
     "This new pricing schedule is designed to make it easier for more
 developers to adopt our technology by making our prices comparable to those of
 similar development tools," said NQL vice president of marketing Denny
 Michael.  "Technology analysts at the Hurwitz Group said our NQL(R) technology
 could be the Visual Basic(R) of the web.  We believe our new pricing and
 configurations will help us increase the product's acceptance to live up to
 that promise."
     Technology analysts at the Hurwitz Group have called NQL's core
 technology, "The first pure language of the content engineering era," saying
 in a recent white paper, "Five years from now, Network Query Language might
 very well be the SQL of the next web era.  The content engineering era needs a
 language, just like client/server needed Visual Basic, the first web
 generation needed HTML, and the mainframe generation needed COBOL.  Network
 Query Language ranks as a most compelling candidate as the standard processing
 language for the content engineering age."
     The product's new configurations include the Standard, Professional and
 Enterprise versions, which all run on Solaris, Linux and all Windows-based
 operating systems.  The Standard Edition is priced at $495 and is designed as
 the entry point product with NQL technology's core functionalities.  Beyond
 the Standard Edition is the Professional Edition with a price of $1,500, which
 provides the technology's complete range of functions including: running NQL
 scripts as web applications; mobile device supports; neural networks; and
 advanced protocols for large networks.  The Enterprise Edition is now priced
 at $10,000 and has been enhanced to accommodate an unlimited number of
 development stations, making it suitable for larger development organizations,
 which require multiple developers to build products.
     The technology's evaluation period has also been extended to allow
 developers more time to evaluate the product and to match evaluation periods
 for similar development tools.
     Commercially available since April 2000, the Network Query Language
 technology was designed to help organizations leverage data housed in any
 computerized system, from unstructured content on the web to data locked in
 outdated legacy systems.  Network Query Language technology was created with
 the new class of connected applications in mind -- intelligent agents, bots,
 spiders, middleware, and web applications.  Network Query Language offers the
 essential ingredients to rapidly develop those applications.
     NQL will introduce its newly reconfigured technology to software
 developers attending the SD West 2001 Conference and Expo, which begins today.
